   2017 NBA Manifesto

Jerian Grant
PG, 6’4, 195lbs, 24 years old, 2 years of experience

Sometimes capable of being an admirable fill-in, yet often guilty of trying to do too much, Grant was the second best point guard option on the team, but one with his own distinct shortcomings. A willing driver, the upside of Grant’s aggressiveness going towards the basket was in some points at the rim that no other point guard option could be relied upon, while the downside was some wild drives, too many pull-ups and some turnovers. Grant spots up from outside fairly well and, with his size and athleticism, could be a shooting, driving, defending, secondary ball handler type if he can cut down on the mistakes, play in transition, stop trying to post up and continues to grow defensively, where he shows promising signs.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. A good role playing guard, projecting as a good backup with occasional starting duties. One of the better young pieces, which is of course a very relative statement.

At point guard, Chicago has five options. The remarkably inconsistent Rajon Rondo, who turned his play around down the stretch of the season but who had struggled so badly prior that almost got bought out at one point, is flanked by the far younger quarter of Jerian Grant, Michael Carter-Williams, Cameron Payne and the small shooting guard that is Isaiah Canaan. All five, particularly the latter four, and even more particularly the latter three, have been consistently unreliable (although Grant emerged as the season went on as the less ball-dominant presence who could pick his spots alongside Wade and Butler).

Although he does not have the talent of a starting NBA point guard, Grant currently is one, and has been all season. And while this may be the night Kris Dunn returns from injury, the starting spot will surely still be Grant’s to begin with, who is averaging 10.3 points, 7.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 steals and only 2.5 turnovers per game thus far.
